Ace and His OrthoPets Stifle Device (Dog Knee Brace)

Ace is an eleven year old, neutered male, German Shepherd Mix. He was diagnosed with a left, cranial cruciate ligament (ACL/CCL) tear in November 2019. Ace has a history of Hepatocellular Carcinoma (liver cancer) which makes him not a great candidate for surgery.

OrthoPets fabricated a standard, stifle device (dog knee brace) which will help stabilize the stifle joint and prevent tibial thrust.

Ace’s veterinarian’s goal is stabilization of the stifle, improvement of lameness and avoiding surgery/anesthesia at this time.

Ace received his left, stifle device in December 2019 and has been doing great so far!
